She has an inhaler so its not an unusual occurrence, but has come on very quickly since picking her up from school yesterday. She has been drinking but hasn't eaten since lunchtime yesterday. I would take her to doc's if it was a week day, but as its sat it would mean urgent care centre and I'm not sure she needs that, any thoughts?
my daughter suffers with asthma and same as you she always seems to be bad on a wkend when the docs isnt open. if she's really bad i take her to AnE but if you think emergany care isnt nesersary try running the shower on hot for 15 minutes with the door closed so the bathroom gets all steamy and then go and sit in there with your daughter for 15 mins. the steam should help to open the airways a bit better it usually works for my daughter.
thanks all, I agree re. nhsdirect usually, but have just spoken to a nurse who seemed to know what she was on about - first time ever! I will let her sleep for now as she sounds ok and temp is ok too. I'll take her when she wakes up if no improvement. Shes 4.10 luvaduck
hi luvaduck she's much perkier today thanks, I did take her to urgent care in the end, she has ABs for a slight chest infection, but today has requested strawberries and lemonade and eaten a roast dinner, so definitely on the mend! Thanks for your help
